The People's Republic of Yamatoshi is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 251 million Yamatoshians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Yamatoshian economy, worth 8.98 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 35,794 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Dozens of viewers tune in weekly to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yamatoshi's national animal is the Panda, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
